How are we to live our lives?
Matthew 24:3 Now as Yeshua sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the Age?” 24:4 And Yeshua answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you!”
Matthew 24:32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree (Israel): When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 24:33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, at the doors! 24:34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away until all these things take place. 24:35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My Words will by no means pass away.”
Luke 21:29 Then He (Yeshua) spoke to them a parable: “Look at the fig tree (Israel), and all the trees. 21:30 When they are already budding, you see and know for yourselves that summer is now near. 21:31 So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the Kingdom of God is near. 21:32 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away until all things take place. 21:33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My Words will by no means pass away.”
In these two Scripture passages we see Yeshua telling about His return in the generation which we are now living in.
How long is a generation? Psalm 90:10 says that the days of our lives are seventy years, and if by reason of strength they are eighty years.
Israel became a nation on May 14, 1948. 70 years ended on May 14th, 2018, and 80 years will end on May 14th in 2028. Since we are now in 2021, 2028 is only 7 years away. Everything on earth is winding down in preparation for our Lord Yeshua’s soon return. However, the One World Government’s New World Order, which now controls most of the nations of the world, does not know God, and is now attempting to take over and control the peoples of the world, using their untested evil deadly vaccines, fears, and controls. But the God of Heaven is forever in total charge and in absolute control over all things on this earth. His Blood has paid the full price for our healing and our health. What are we, His Body, doing with all that Yeshua has given us?
And what is our God about to do?
Daniel 9:24 thru 9:27 talks about the 70 Weeks of years of Daniel, with the last Week of seven years just about to begin, the last 7 years for this planet before our Lord returns. And during the last 3 1/2 years of those 7 years of great Tribulation it says that the anti Christ will reign from the Jerusalem Temple over all the earth.
In Daniel 12:7 we see God’s holy people broken. “Then I heard the Man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up His right hand and His left hand to Heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time (3 1/2 years); and when the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things shall be finished (completed).”
Revelation 10:5 The Angel (Messenger Yeshua) whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised up His hand to Heaven 10:6 and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be delay no longer, 10:7 but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound (Revelation 11:15), the Mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.
What is this Mystery of God? I believe that this mystery of God is two fold, and will take place with two major events.
First, that Yeshua will have created for Himself His Bride from His called and chosen and faithful believers, from within all those of His believing Body. The Wedding for Yeshua and His Bride will be held in Heaven, Revelation 11:15.
And the second major event is that the kingdoms of this world will have become the Kingdoms of our God and of His Messiah and Savior, Yeshua. For the earth will have come under the ownership and authority of Yeshua, the Son of Man and the Son of God. See Revelation 11:15-18
With all these things soon about to happen on the earth, how are we now to live out the rest of our lives on this earth?
Let’s look at Yeshua’s Words and see how He has directed us to live for Him …
Yeshua told us this answer in many places in His Word. This is the time for us to just go for it, for we now have nothing to lose. To follow the Holy Spirit in whatever way He directs us. For Yeshua always did what His Father directed Him to do. Those who are led by the Holy Spirit are the sons of God. Romans 8:15 To live our lives for Yeshua and His Gospel to the fullest. To love Yeshua with all that is within us, and also to love each other, to forgive one another, and to really lay down our lives for each other. But also to especially now reach out to the unsaved all around us with the Gospel message more than ever before, even if it should cost us our very lives.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
What will be the catalyst that brings on the 70th Week of Daniel, the last 7 years?
I believe that this will be the Ezekiel 38–39 Gog Magog War against Israel, which God has been holding back until His perfect timing. I believe that this will begin very soon, with Israel first taking out the Iranian nuclear facilities. That that attack on Iran will be the hook that brings Gog (Russia) into this War (Ezekiel 38:4), because of the many War covenant pacts between Russia and Iran. For in Ezekiel 38:5 we see Iran coming into this War just as foot soldiers. What does that mean? It means that Iran no longer has any nuclear power to attack Israel with.
I believe that this Ezekiel 38-39 War with Russia and Iran is now at our door!
Also remember that at the end of the Gog Magog War, there will be 7 years of burning weapons, the last 7 years for our planet before the Messiah returns. See Ezekiel 39:9, 10.
These war weapons will not be being burned during the 1000 Year Millennial Reign of our King – High Priest Yeshua, when Yeshua Reigns from Jerusalem over all the earth.
Soon after this Gog Magog War is over, persecution will come against the Israeli Messianic Jews by the Israeli Orthodox religious Jews; which this will then lead into time of the world’s greatest Revival.
After God sovereignly wins this Gog– Magog War Ezekiel 38-39 War, the Israeli Orthodox religious Jews will come into great political power over night. And they have two main agendas: to quickly build their house in Jerusalem on Mount Zion hill, in order to begin doing their blood sacrifices to the God of Israel. But they also greatly desire to get rid of all those Jews in Israel who believe in other gods, especially those Jews who believe in our Lord Yeshua. This will then bring about great religious persecution of Messianic and Church believers by the Orthodox religious Jews here in Israel.
I believe that this will be the time when the God of Heaven will move, and will y pour out His Spirit upon the Messianic believing body here in Israel, which will bring about the world’s greatest and unstoppable Revival and harvest of souls, beginning from Jerusalem.
It will first come upon the Messianic Jewish believers gathered and praying in the Jerusalem ben Hinnom Valley, which is located just below Mount Zion hotel, near Jaffa Gate and the Old City wall of Jerusalem. Why do I say this?
On June 16th, 1999, I was given two visions of this coming great Revival located in the ben Hinnom Valley. Read my book on this coming great Revival on my website … ‘The Coming Great World Revival : The Ben Hinnom Valley Story!’
God’s outpouring of His Holy Spirit will bring in the world’s Greatest Revival and Harvest of souls, with major signs, wonders and miracles, which neither men nor governments will be able to stop, and this will last for a couple of years. I believe that through the prayers of the believers many dead people will be raised by God, along with 100’s, perhaps 1000’s of other major miracles being witnessed daily.
And this Revival, which begins from Jerusalem and perhaps other areas in Israel, it will spread out world-wide to the nations of the earth. It will usher in the last great world Revival and harvest of souls before the return of our Lord Yeshua, bringing in millions of new believers.
Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. 2:29 And also on My men servants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. 2:30 And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood and fire and pillars of smoke. 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD. 2:32 And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as the LORD has said, among the remnant whom the LORD calls.”
At the end of the 7 years of Tribulation Yeshua will return from Heaven with His Bride and all the rest of His armies, (Revelation 19:11-14) to establish His Millennial Kingdom on earth, His 1000 year Reign from Jerusalem.
